The Israeli society is diverse, both ethnically and economically. Its population is composed of 22% non-Jewish minorities including Muslims, Bedouins, Christians and Druze, most living in low socio-economic  locations. Among the Jewish majority, there are ultra-orthodox (8%) and Ethiopian-origin (1.5%) groups, as  well as populations living in geographic and low socio-economic periphery. Such a diverse society brings challenges in terms of equity, access and democratization of  higher education. The present report, performed for the Love.Dist@nce project aims to review and summarize the main practices and policies in Israel on this topic.
